    Crazy pinwheel quilt top

    I have been working on this quilt for about 3 years now and finally got to finish it when my guild had our annual retreat last week. Was sure nice to have a big space to spread it out. Now I just have to get the backing made and then send it off to the LA quilter. It is bigger than queen size and I know I could never quilt that much bulk with my little sewing machine. Will be so glad when I am adding the binding. Needless to say, it is very colorful and I love it.

    Scrapys are calling to me and I don't want to do one! Such small pieces, so much repetition. Case closed!!! And then people like you show off an absolutely beautiful quilt and put me right back into wanting to do something as beautiful. How unkind! :>)

    I was wondering about that. You do look comfortable down there, but it's the in-between that is not so photogenic .... for me anyway.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
